On the upcoming Sunday, the first match of the Spanish Super Cup between Barcelona and Real Madrid will be played. The forthcoming game will be held on the Spanish Cup winner’s field, Barcelona to be exact. In this couple bookmakers reckon, that Barcelona have better chances on success, as the home ground must help the Catalonians win, but it should be noted, that Barca have a very serious squad loss in the person of Neymar, besides, unlike Barca, Real already have a gaming practice, as they’ve already played in the European Super Cup match.
Barcelona looked fine at the midseason training camp. The team won against Juventus, 2:1, Manchester United, 1:0, Real Madrid, 3:2, Chapecoense, 5:0 and had a 1:1 draw with Gimnastic Tarragona team. Bu it is not a control match ahead, but an official game, so will Barca be able to confirm its great shape in the confrontation with the strongest team of Europe is a big question.
Unlike Barcelona, Real Madrid did not show their best results during the preseason: they lost to Manchester United in a penalty shoot-out, fell against Manchester City and Barcelona in full-time and managed to defeat only the MLS stars. But in the first official game already, the team showed its high class, defeating Man Utd, which recently defeated the Royals with a score of 2:1.
Real Madrid are in a great sporting shape, the team will put maximum effort in the upcoming game not to lose to Barca and make a handicap for the upcoming match, which will be held Santiago Bernabeu in four days already.
Prediction for the match: Real Madrid to win with +1.0 Asian handicap
